If you handed me a shotgun and told me to do the deed, right now, I'd do it in heartbeat. We are all so tired of this. We want closure, even if that means losing the team. Believe me when I say I am desperately hoping what you say is true. Stringing this along another season or two is about the most awful outcome possible.

I will, however, point out that the league let Yandle and Hanzal sign long term deals to keep them with the franchise. So perhaps they aren't as uncommitted as some think.
